New Legwarmers and Eco Kids



Although I am a beginner when it comes to knitting, I do so enjoy a beautiful skein of handspun, hand-dyed yarn.  I chose purple with both of my girls in mind, and when Ana discovered that I had decided to make leg warmers, she claimed them.  This has been my favorite project so far, and somewhere near the end of the first legwarmer, I finally got the hand of my knit and purl stictches.  I love those "A-ha moments," and these legwarmers were mine for knitting.  I'm just glad that my girl likes them just as much as I do!

    1. It's so nice to knit with natural fiber. It makes me want a sheep. Too bad I live in the suburbs!
